Retail sales in September were weaker than the surveys had suggested. They were flat, as in August, though for the third quarter as a whole there was a 0.9% rise in volumes. Interestingly, non-food sales, including housing market sensitive household goods' sales, were stronger than food sales over the quarter. More details here.
